Why Drive an Electric Vehicle?
EVs boast benefits beyond those to your wallet and the environment:
Fuel costs to drive an electric vehicle are 40%-50% less than gasoline vehicles, dependent on the current price of gasoline. EVs also have fewer parts than an internal combustion engine, requiring less maintenance.
Unlike the price of gasoline, the price of electricity is set by the State of Michigan. Rates are available that reward EV drivers for charging their vehicles during off-peak hours (7pm - 11am).
Plug-in electric vehicles have no tailpipe and produce no direct emissions like carbon monoxide.
We're moving aggressively to change the way we generate electricity. By the year 2040 our plan is to eliminate the use of coal to generate electricity and reduce carbon emissions by 90%.
We're dedicated to investing in clean sources of energy. You can subscribe to renewable energy to make your power source even more sustainable and help us reduce the carbon footprint by participating in Solar Gardens.
Whether you drive an EV, or run a business that will offer charging stations, the PowerMIDrive program may have a rebate for you. Installing a charging station at home or business is a smart invest-ment in your future. And now, you can save a lot of money when you do it.
